of president will change that equation. it may, however, move both sides closer to a deal but i think the revenue increases are going to be a difficult part until you get postsequester. >> congressman, i agree with everything you just said and speak to a couple of theories floetding around that the dysfunction we see in washington now is purposeful. e.j. dion suggests perhaps to make it hard for the president to accomplish anything that sort of shrinking the calendar on the affirmative portion of this administration. but also, trying to talk about people dislike congress more, thus speaking to the republican, larger republican theory that congress is at a -- government is the problem, thus leading to the idea that government should be shrunk. what do you think about those theories? >> i think it's little conspire toirl. you have differences from both sides. going to be difficult to just bridge that gap easily. and it's been difficult for democrats to move toward the republican side and vice versa. bringing government down doesn't help the republicans at this point. the president's the

this to fair change, we do not have much change, with more than $16 trillion in debt we have no change, and washington, incapable to agree on a cut, where well, we have no money. republicans are right to say we have to cut our way out of this mess, and democrats right to say, we can't out our way to prosperity. we have to boom our way out. no boom? boom. so how do you sustain a 5 year crawl? make sure it does not turn into another crash. easier said than done, we have to do now is make sure, well, it doesn't happen any time soon, i will ask former nyse chairman dick grasso about, that but first, swiss america chairman greg smith, and joe durham did anything change today or punch wait and confirm what we've seen in recent days? >> i think two things have happened that are important, one, the market is a reblixive of our -- reflective of our collective psychology, until it hit a new high, the average investor was still in a, what do i do to avoid losing more money mind set, they will start shifting to an, am i missing opportunities so that fear from shifting money to missing opportunity
're trying to do. but governor bush seemed to change his stance somewhat during a series of recent interviews prompting tough criticism from senate majority leader harry reid. >> let's wait for a few minutes and see how jeb bush changes his mind again. his opinion on immigration is not evolving. it's devolving. he keeps going backwards. i think he's frankly made a fool of himself the last 24 hours. frankly, on this issue, i don't think jeb bush is a florida leader. i think marco rubio is. bush has been elected to nothing lately. rubio is the leader on immigration. >> okay. joe, a new poll by latino decisions shows immigration reform is by far the most important issue for hispanic voters. that's by the economy and jobs, education and health care. >> john heilemann, let's talk, john heilemann, about your next book. bush -- "game change 2016." i think this may have to be the opening scene of jeb getting out of a cab in the middle of the dark, you know, in a cold march morning and walking into the "today" show when announcing that he's changed his mind. i mean, the second i heard it, i said, the

: are you changing your asset allocation mix now? is that something you're in the midst of doing, especially on a day like today and yesterday when there seems to be a lot of money moving around, not a lot of new money, but money moving nonetheless. >> we're not changing our allocation. it's a bottom-up investor, a u.s. equity focus, and what we noticed it the past eight years, most investors flee u.s. equities to go to cash and bonds, some of the money might be coming back into the market, and that actually would be a significant catalyst for significantly higher equity evaluations. cheryl: you have bullish targets for the year. you say we got a good 10% to run here with maybe, like, a 5% pullback. do you think we're getting that pullback now as you look at the trajectory the rest of the year? >> well, it's true, near term, the markets had a terrific run, since november of last year, it would bb, i think, acceptable to a pullback, and cypress would be an excuse for that, but i think it's a strong buying opportunity. we've had several in the last few year, and, actually, the correct decision

"the truth is, the nation's death is a sign of overreach. government is trying to do too much, and when government does too much, it doesn't do anything well. so a balanced budget is a reasonable goal, because it returns government to its proper limits and focus." this seems, susan, pretty consistent with the position that republicans have had. so is there more a statement of what the republicans want, sort of a show piece here? >> it's interesting, chris, we've seen in the last week or two some better, more biparti
another prime example. if we were to do those things, it would change the psyche in congress, get people more courage and get us closer to doing things you've written about over the years. >>> we want to mark another important anniversary. and officials say, it has news to go with it. at least 56 people were killed this morning in explosions across iraq. that's exactly ten years after then president bush announced the u.s. invasion. most of today's attacks were car bombings around baghdad, including one near major government offices and foreign embassies. we're still getting information in on that in terms of casualties and injuries. elizabeth, you first, ten years later, where are we? well, it's a very difficult anniversary. no one remembers this fondly at all. the iraqis certainly don't remember this well. they're not marking this anniversary at all. i also think that the war changed fundamentally the way the united states thinks about war. look at how reluctant the president is right now to intervene in syria in a serious way. look at how reluctant the pentagon was to go to war to int
the change of a latitude. >> why are you so confident in that attitude? how many states permit gay couples to marry? >> today? nine, your honor. >> nine. so there has been this sea change between now and 1996? >> i think with respect to the understanding of gay people and their relationship, i think there is a sea change. >> i suppose the sea change has a lot to do with the force and effectiveness of people supporting your side of the case? >> the chief justice of the united states supreme court also faulted president obama for enforcing doma but not defending it. >> if he has made a determination that executing the law by enforcing the terms is unconstitutional, i don't see why he doesn't have the courage of his convictions and execute, not only the stat us, but do it consistent with his view of the constitution, rather than saying we will wait until the supreme court says we have no choice. >> the white house says they enforce plenty of laws he doesn't agree with. >> the justices were not leaving much drama there. but i can tell it you who has been silent in washington this week and that

's life. and that is wrong. that's what we need to change. we need to change the conversation entirely and focus on the choices and the actions of the person who committed the crime. because the only reason rain happens is rapists choose to commit rain. that is what we need to be talking about. and instead we always about what the victims could have and should have done to avoid rain, and that's completely wrong. >> erin, how do we push past this identification with the two young men, the boys in this case and focus squarely again on this female victim, because it seems some people are blaming the victim because it seems they either knew details of the case or didn't care or didn't know, like the damning messages sent. >> i'm inspired by the bravery of this young woman who testified in front of her accusers and went against the tide in a town that wore chipped football and football players. in terms of the town now it looks like there's going to be a grand jury convened. i think there are a lot of unanswered questions when it comes to the actions of the coach and his failure to report

in terms of where -- between these two men. >> can i give obama -- go ahead. >> here's what could change now. i think part of the affection for biden that a lot of people have is sort of predicated on the idea he didn't really want anything. he was pretty old when he took the job. nobody really thought he was going to try to succeed obama as president, and the first term it wasn't really an issue. i think that might change. i think biden does want something. i think biden has gotten kind of interested in being president. in fact, this scuttle but that he thinks he is running. it's a private joke he has with himself. nobody else thinks he would be a very strong candidate, but that changes the dynamic. if you are tying to get that job, people relate to you very differently than if you are at the end of your career or helping someone else. the president has been making a number of cabinet -- there's a lot of talk about obama ushering out the form of rivals, and he is bringing out his folks. at this point it's a mixed wag, if you will. i mean, in john kerry, he doesn't have someone who is pa
. but this week i think exposed some serious changes, if not a rift within the elder wing -- the elder sort of establishment wing of the republican party in the upper chamber. not just on sequester but with the rand paul talky filibuster. >> i was pleased see that picture because normally there's a democrat standing there getting a scowl. >> i've been on elevators like that myself. you know, i think that, you know, i appreciate what senator mccain and senator graham were trying to say. under no circumstances are americans at home in danger of getting shot by a drone from the u.s. government. however, they continue to be a little bit behind the curve of where a broad swath of the american people are. sure, you know, a large majority of the american people believe that we should use drones to go after terrorists abroad, but they also want our constitution protected, and there's a way to do both. that's what the president has been trying to convey. that's ultimately what the attorney general put in his letter yesterday. >> is he fairly brazen. >> it doesn't make it right. just because they did
about those unemployed over -- >> diskournled. >> what is it? 27 weeks or so? >> that's not changing a whole lot and the real negative in the report was that the amount of people who dropped out of the workforce, meaning part of the reason why the rate went down is because fewer people technically working and just because they're not working doesn't mean they don't exist in the country and this i think is going to be a long-term structural issue in this economy, not one that's amenable to short fixes. fwher a short transition of people making stuff to doing stuff. >> we have talked about the notion of the unemployment rate and what that means and getting some of those incredibly low numbers of the past. we are a different country now. >> it will be a long time and giving critics of current policy fodder but i'm not sure this is a government issue as much as this is a general issue. >> thank you. >> thanks. >> great pleasure. following the big decision of the vatican today. the cardinals decided when they'll begin selecting the next pope. the conclave will begin next tuesday, march 12
that president obama will be very pragmatic and that scares me. he says president obama is willing to change the formula for how benefits under social security, medicare and other programs are calculated, change cpi in exchange for higher taxes? keep in mind the senator, this senator made a big slash filibustering 13 hours over an issue answered with one sentence f. the big three are threatened by a grand bargain. get your phones out. tonight's question. do you want bernie sanders, the senator, independent from vermont, to filibuster to protect the big three? text a for yes. b for no to 67622. you can go to our blog and we'll bring you the results later in the show. i'm already starting to get the feeling i've got a very unpopular position here that we should protect the big three at all costs because that's what this election was all about. it's about making the wealthiest americans pay more, but to get them to pay more, we have to cut into the middle class and elderly who didn't cause these financial problems. i don't buy it. joining me now is senator bernie sanders of vermont. good to hav
, and make some concrete changes that have helped the church regain credibility and helped some of those wounded by the church to heal and come back to the faith. i think it's something that the cardinals are aware of and one of the things they'll be considering as they discern who they believe god would really want to be the next pope. >>> thank you both so very much. of course we'll be watching and coming back to you at a moment's notice, waiting for the smoke. >>> and led by women here at home, women senators, the armed services subcommittee today, has been holding the first hearing in a decade on sexual assault in the military, assaults against both men and women. >> one week before my unit was scheduled to return, i was raped by another service member that had worked with our team. initially i -- i had no faith in my chand. >> commanders too often fa fail to care for the victim or prosecute the perpetrator. >> let's not allow sexual predators who happen to wear a uniform the opportunity to become highly decorated sexual predators. let's make sure they are convicted and dishonorably

shot the secret video that changed the course of history? >> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. 4% individu the 47% video changed the course of the election. the proof was on the video. governor romney was not concerned with the middle class in this country or the poor in america. for months, the identity of the person who shot this video has remained a mystery. over the next hour, you will hear his story and right now, you will find out just who he is. >> what is your name, and what are you all about? >> my name is scott proudy. i'm a regular guy, middle class, hard-working guy. i think i would like to think i have a good moral compass and a core. and i think i have a little bit of empathy. i think i have more empathy that mitt romney had. i don't know how i describe myself, but i was behind this whole thing. i was bartending that night for the romney fund-raiser. >> let's talk about may 17th. what happened that day? >> we got there, you know, it was, you know, a political fund-raiser. we did our usual thing. we set up and, you know, it went off without a
or if public opinion would influence the supreme court. on day marriage we have seen the change in public opinion. it almost feels like they were messaging the exact opposite. they seemed to be concerned about moving too fast. >> that's a reasonable concern if you're the court. people have talked about whether the court moved too fast, for example, in the abortion decision, when the court in 1967 finally said it was unconstitutional for virginia and other states to have rules against interracial marriage. it was after waiting for a number of years and kind of putting off that decision as -- while a number of states change their laws and sort of public opinion caught up with it. i thought yesterday's arguments were really fascinating. not just for getting a glimpse -- and it is dangerous, you get insight for not just getting a glimpse of where justices may be going, but also in terms of how dramatically the debate over gay rights has shifted. you had the lawyer defending prop 8 arguing that california should be able to prohibit same-sex marriage, saying also that he couldn't see any justif
. >> the fact of the matter is the white house is changing how they're doing their outreach. this is different. almost everyone admitted after the dinner that it was more productive because the republican leadership was not in the room. in an interview with speaker boehner, who doesn't want to lose his job, pretty much agreed. >> so no more big top down deals, no more obama-boehner top-down deals or really -- >> those haven't worked very well if you've watched over the last few years. >> i understand. a lot of people would like a deal. >> yeah, but i don't think it's the way to get to one. listen, two people hiding behind closed doors doesn't replicate a 535 members of congress or the wisdom of 535 members of congress. >> right now there are actually some members of the republican leadership who prefer that the bargaining work this way, that the outreach is to the rank and file first, and then they bring in leadership. today the president's outreach continues. he's invited house budget committee chairman paul ryan for lunch at the white house. ryan will of course be rolling out his budget next
that the years old, that dinosaurs and people occupied the same time. change. i mean, they've got people like preppers and birthers and god knows whatnot over there. to believe when rand paul says that -- by the way, freedomworks, you remember this clown outfit, paid dick armey an million severance and they get papers out and everything? they're supporting rand paul to the nth degree. for one minute that he doesn't have deep support with all these cockamamie conspiracy theories he's got going and blowing people up in restaurants in houston and bedrooms in bowling green. >> it is so over the top it's outrageous. i've never heard a senator theorize like that on the floor before. ed, you've got ten house members that are on birther bills. you had half the republican presidential field in 2008 denying evolution. i mean, this isn't just some kind of nutty thing -- this is a party -- i'm not saying all of them. but vast numbers believe in some of the weirdest stuff that you can imagine. >> yeah. well, he's definitely playing with his imagination to think -- what's he think, that the military's goin
who fly for a living and some lawmakers. lisa is in washington watching reaction to this change in security rules. so, lisa, why the change now? and who has a problem with it? >> right. okay, first, why the change now. the leader of the tsa says they have been studying this for years and that they figured out through that assessment that knives actually no longer pose the risk of breaking into a cockpit, allowing a terrorist to take control of the plane or to blow up the plane. so the tsa says knifes like you see here are actually not a catastrophic threat, and these are the knives that tsa says will now be allowed. they are knives with blades that are no longer than 2.36 inches and they are also knives that do not lock in place. so that's why the change now. who has a problem with it? well, for one, senator chuck schumer of new york. add news conference today urging the tsa to change its mind. he said if it didn't, he might try to make them. >> if the tsa refuses to go along we would consider legislation and my guess is it would be large bipartisan support. i don't know anybody
, with their opposition counterparts. there's no, there's no comparison. what we do have is a change in circumstances. because as you know, we've been governing from crisis to crisis with manufactured deadlines now, repeatedly whether it was the debt ceiling negotiations or the super committee. or the fiscal cliff or the sequester deadline. now because republicans chose to embrace the sequester, let it take place, let it be implemented with all its negative impacts, that's a negative. but the fact is it means we don't have the looming deadline that requires you know, huddled negotiations with congressional leadership to try to produce an outcome before you know, something terrible happens at midnight on any given day. we now are engaged in what's called regular order. budget process that includes the house passing a budget resolution, the senate passing its budget resolution. the president submitting his budget and then hopefully, hopefully through conference you know, through meetings of the house and the senate, you know, some kind of compromise emerges that represents the balance that the american
cost you at aflac.com. >>> president obama still believes in change you can believe in. it's friday, march 22nd and this is "now." >>> joining me today, political editor and white house correspondent, at the hu "huffington post" and as msnbc contributor, sam stein. vice president of demos, heather mcagree, politico's political reporter jake sherman and bloomberg's senior national correspondent, josh green. >>> president obama is now ming with jordan's kill abdullah. they're expected to discuss the civil war in syria as well as prospects for peace between israel and the palestinians. yesterday the president delivered a speech filled with optimism and hard truths to a room filled with israeli students, beyond endorsing a two-state solution, the president asserted that forging a lasting peace is a matter of civil rights. couching it the broader question of what it means to be a democracy. a return to the signature themes of the 2008 campaign and the early days of his presidency. as he outlined in cairo in 2009, the president began by affirming america's respect and its commitment. >> i
to say this is my friend, but it changes the definition of what it means to be a friend. and that's it seems to me what supporters of proposition 8 are saying here. all you're interested is the label and you insist on changing the definition of the label. >> it's like saying you can vote, you can travel, but you cannot be a citizen. there are certain labels in this country that are critical. you could have said in the loving case, you can't get married, but you can have an interracial union. everyone would know that was wrong. >> john roberts and ted olson arguing about whether this "marriage" label means something, or if you can have first-class citizenship while the state still bans you from having that label, that one thing. if you wanted to know today if there was any good old fashioned homophobic ignorance in the court, yes, there was, on the wings of a dove named antonin scalia. he was trying to help out the lawyer arguing the anti gay rights side. he starts out trying to help the lawyer and goes right off the cliff. >> mr. cooper, let me give you one concrete thing. why don
calling for change. those voices are a silent majority that needs to be vocal and need to be galvanized and organized. i think the votes can be there for a ban on illegal trafficking. the instance you described earlier involviing ebel that killed the correction officer in colorado and killed another person on his way to shooting the police officer who tried to apprehend him. classic straw purchase and should be banned. background checks to prevent him from having weapons, deranged people like adam lanza from having access. the sheer volume of bullets and ammunition and rounds in that war arsenal is absolutely stunning. we need to make sure that we keep those ammunition and firearms out of the hands of dangerous people. school safety and mental health issues. those core provisions i think have a lot of support. we need americans to remind my colleagues in the senate their voices have to be heard. >> it struck me today that we've been chronicling on this show the relentless political activism on this issue. the beltway common wisdom is people will forget about it because people will stop
no interest in dropping their favorite past-time, but democrats could put a stop to it by changing the rules. the idea is it isn't even the rules, it's them. >> i thought it made sense right after he was elected the first time to try to reach across the aisle. that was the theme of his entire campaign. pretty soon it became clear that there was never going to be any, any give on, in terms of give and take on the part of the republicans. after a while, he needed, he and the democrats not just obama, needed to go after this party and make it clear that they are obstructionists, that they are harming working people. they're harming the middle class, they're harming the poor and that's never occurred. >> another example of this, carrie. jonathan bernstein in the "washington post" had a piece that sums up my feelings probably about this. but this is what he wrote -- he said the truth is that the house of representatives, which is the chief sort of opponents of the obama agenda, right now appear to be both in capable of legislating and not interested in it either. the only thing to do is put the d
should be a part of debt reduction is 83%. how about climate change which republicans denounce as a hoax. if you ask latinos if climate change is a serious problem, 70% of latinos say yes. latinos support gun safety lejs lakes. 62% support high risk magazines. ask la teen yoes about marriage equality for same sex couples. a clear majority say yes, they are in favor of that. the senator rand paul speech that i love hot latin culture, let me read you a love poem, before he got to the love poem that speech was all about how he is sure that latinos agree with him on abortion and same-sex marriage. he said he was sure they agree with him. check the stereotype. that's what the stereotype says. he is teetly wrong with that no matter what the stereotype is. they do not agre with him on those issues probably but he want thester why tight # type to fit so why change it? he looks it. >> part of the bigtory of the republican party in 2013 is going to be watching them try to bridge this gap. try to fix this problem that they've got with la teebo voters. this problem if they cannot fix it they cannot
cost expected range from $5 to $7 per hour. >> muni says the changes will make more parking spots available and, help reduce congestion, by discouraging circle in around the ballpark for parking. >> as you might imagine drivers are not buying that. >> it is just a bigger pain in the butt. >> it is annoying to have to pay more. >> the price of the ferry ride it also increase from $9 to $11 this season. the golden gate bridge district scheduled to hold a public hearing on the fares increase proposal on thursday. >> if approved, the new rates would take effect by the start of the season. >> 7 06. as we go to break let us check with george to give up their of the commute. >> thank you darya. we have been keeping an eye on the nimitz freeway were lanes were reconfigured over the weekend. >> this is around fifth with a bite out is being rebuilt. >>vi>vidact. >> we are keeping an eye on it. current conditions are good but there is the possibility of an accident occurring at the site. if you are driving be prepared for those changes. we will take a break in the kron 4 [ male announcer ] s
. thank you. republican senator rob portman made headlines, saying he has had a change of heart about same-sex marriage. since learning his son is gay, he no longer opposes the idea, writing, i wrestled with how to reconcile my christian faith with my desire for will to have the same desires to pursue happiness and fulfillment. and it became to the bible's overarching themes of love and compassion and we are all concern children of god. joining me now, tony perkins, president of the family search council. thanks for joining us today. >> good afternoon. >> this is a very, very difficult, delicate balance for a lot of family who is say, this is not something that i have believed in. my religion doesn't agree with this. but this is my child. and now i see it differently. >> shannon, that's right. i support senator portman for his very public display of his unconditional love for his son. i mean, as a parent myself, i think the worst thing we can do in any circumstance is to reject our child. not only is that counter productive to them, it's counter productive to society. and it does run count
it a federal crime to move guns unlawfully against state line and changing things on books there. something people will talk about as a success if that gets through. so much focus on background checks. one of the big questions from people who are still hesitant about that is what would it actually do in a practical sense if you've got a neighbor-to-neighbor selling a weapon or a family member to another and how would that work in practical terms. the idea of background checks has broiad support but it gets down to the specifics. watch for the senators from red states up for re-election and the pressure is greatest on them. they are away two weeks now from washington, back home, and there will be pressure on them. they will hear from their constituents about what to do from this. if you don't have much support, if any, among republicans, you need those democrats to get it through. >> hey, mark, give me a sense of harry reid's role in this. he wants to keep that title senate majority leader. navigating through these ice floes of this. >> it's already on the side of those who would like to see
, but it changes the definition of what it means to be a friend. and that, it seems to me what supporters of proposition 8 are saying here. all you're interested in is the label and you insist on changing the definition of the label. >> that is the voice of chief justice john roberts there. >> if you're over the age of 55, you don't help us serve the government's interest and regulate through marriage so why is that different? >> your honor, even with respect to couples over the age of 55, it is very rare that both parties to the couple are infertile and the traditional. >> no, because if a couple -- i can just assure you if both the woman and the man are over the age of 55, there are not a lot of children coming out of that marriage. >> that's elena kagan right there. jonathan capehart, how old were you? seriously? >> no. move on. >> no. this is good. this is a fair question. >> not over 50. >> jonathan, let's start our conversation with you. it's always a treat to listen into the supreme court. we don't get to hear that very often. what did you take away from what you heard yesterday? >
the administration is the fact that the plans that they put forward, including some reform changes like chain cpi and social security, medicare different payments in terms of -- no one knows about them, and ezra cline had a good post where he talked to an unnamed republican congressman about chain c.p.i., and the congressman said something like if only they would go there, we could get a deal. they went there. you know, it's funny in one respect, but it's also sort of sad and problematic in another that if you have to actually just start with educating them about what's in the proposal, then the end game, which is the actual deal making is far off, and i guess sea bass will help, but it will take a lot of sea bass. >> a lot of chilean sea bass. >> i think everybody has seen that bill o'reilly tape where he says you're lying about what the president has on offer, and really there is a sense that no matter what president obama puts on the table, it won't be enough. even if it's precisely the things that republicans are calling for. >> it won't be enough or won't be believed that he is actually putt
a great deal of change to things like social security. we don't need to look at changing the cpi. >> of course, we do. any company, any family has to take a look at its spending, but it's absolutely dumb and stupid to say that a family's got to cut across the board. >> targeted cuts. >> cutting one thing may mean you have to double the cost for what you were trying to prevent in the first place. so you sit at a table, of course, sequestration was created as a nightmare that never should happen, and so the same people who did it, members of congress -- >> you voted for it. >> no, i didn't. no, i didn't. >> you voted for the bill in which sequestration was included. >> no! no! no! sequestration is something that no one thought of that could possibly happen and so we did it. we can't undo it. there's no real reason anybody can say why we can't get together except some cocky maimy idea that the republican party would raise revenue. i didn't say increase taxes. i said raise revenue. >> i want to talk to you about drones, the other topic of conversation this week. this is what senate i
